What changed between this and last internship

Words of wisdom along the way

“A document is never a one-person thing. If one person writes it, it’s an opinion.”

“Before you agree to an ask, always get more information. When you agree, hold people accountable to engage and give feedback.”

“Nobody should go to a meeting by themselves. Always have a second set of ears from your team to listen.”

“Know a lot of things and be humble.”

Reppin’ Microsoft :-)

What was difficult

“When I expressed enthusiasm for the project, your mode of communication was not inclusive. I acknowledge you are busy so if this project is you’re okay to contribute to, let me know.”

What went well

That’s a wrap!
